HTW partnered with Sowell Architects to provide structural engineering services for addition and remodel for Mr. Brake and Lube located in Russellville, Arkansas.
The addition is a new pre-engineered metal building structure with a concrete slab that features access pits for personnel to work on vehicles. The new structure sits on drilled concrete piers.
The existing structure required a new wide-span opening in the existing pre-cast concrete walls to allow movement between the existing and new buildings. A new structural system supports the existing roof while accommodating the new open span.
